My baby, Scarlett, came to her new home on August 27th, 2013. After a 100 mile drive from DCH Temecula, I knew this relationship was going to be a very good one.

After a few weeks of just enjoying the car, the urge to begin dressing her up had become uncontrollable, so thus, it began.

Welcome to the wonderful world of build threads! :thumbsup:
Thanks a bunch :D hoping to be able to update this thread often!

Wheels plastidipped white (testing white plastidip, liked it, keeping it.)

also removed dip on hood because it was kind of hard to keep clean

I love how you dipped the lip, I did that on my PWP. Looks way better on a red car though!

I like the wheels white better than black

Nice build so far!
Thanks a bunch, man! lets just hope I can keep it clean.

I'm going to do the other side this Sunday (if I don't get lazy... again...)

Just got my NRG carbon fiber hood dampers today, going to install them tonight :3

Contemplating putting my 'hybrid' badge back on, but I feel like it would look weird if I didn't put the 'crz' on the other side back on... thoughts?

Leave it de-badged and get this:



I did that for both mine and my wife's car. Car looks good man, keep it up. I like the new hood dampers.

where do I get this? :O i'd probably only put this in the front though, tbh. I work for a car dealership and its pretty important I represent... at least, that's what my manager told me :| I really don't like my dealer plates, or any dealer plates for that matter
